It's obvious why it was delayed. 2012 is going to be dry because of michael bay games.

So it's going down the Mafia 2 route; 6 big delays before release.

2011 the year of amazing games (Uncharted 3, Skyrim, Arkham City)
2012 the year of delays (Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider, Alien: CM, XCOM)

does anyone else thi might end up getting Cancelled. Here's how. The remake of enemy unknown will come out in October. Chances are it'll get a goodish reception from critics but it'll sell bugger all. Or not enough to stimulate any bizz for another xcom game off the back of it.

Then they'll cancel the xcom fps.

It seems to be too far developed to cancel it. It wouldn't be smart to let all that invested cash to go to waste. They might as well try try and make some of the loss back.

I'm not so sure. It's been development for a good long while but all we've actually seen of it is a couple of good trailers.

It's not unheard of of games being quite far along and getting the ax. look at sleeping dogs. that was practically complete and Activision still wanted to cancel it before square stepped in.

I hope it doesn't get cancelled and take 2 generally speaking do have enough faith in the games they publish to let them at least try ontheir own merits.

You may be right SMOKEY, but it was Activison who dropped SD simply because they went over a buget, which to me sounds like Acti wanted a basic cheaply made game that would have probably been a rental at best. TT don't seem to be the type of company to be that dirty. Mafia 2 had a seriously long development time as well (8 years I think) so this delay doesn't really suprise me to be honest.

I really hope it does come out, i'm a sucker for a FPS based in the 50's.
